Springtime sun and mild breezes lifted spirits as bodies swayed to a wide variety of musical entertainment at the 2019 Greenwich Town Party.
Greenwich-area residents who were fortunate enough to find themselves in possession of highly-sought tickets to this 9th annual edition of the Greenwich Town Party celebrated with dance, smiles, and free-spirited fun at the all-day, volunteer-supported music festival.
Greenwich musicians were well represented, including the Greenwich High School Jazz Ensemble, Greenwich-native Caroline Jones (a rising pop-country singer/songwriter), and the Sun Kings (an all-Greenwich-resident Beatles Tribute Band), and local-favorite classic-rockers 8Track Band, among others!
Full-fledged star-power was also in serious supply with afternoon/evening Main Stage performances by The Beach Boys, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, PLUS headlining southern-rock legends, Lynyrd Skynyrd!
Food trucks served up an abundance of delicious bites - including showings by Bella Nonna, Sweat Pea’s, Burgers Shakes & Fries, Bobby Q’s, Fjord Fish Market, and Chipwitch.
Add in plenty of family-friendly activities for the children AND the opportunity for some of the noteworthy nonprofits that make Greenwich a special place to live all year long to share their messaging with attendees -- and it's easy to see why the well-rounded and professionally-organized Greenwich Town Party consistently ranks as one of the most buzz-worthy cultural events on the Greenwich social calendar!
Living Greenwich photographer Pam Grunow was in attendance as the music and festivities reverberated across Greenwich Harbor and Long Island Sound from the shores of Roger Sherman Baldwin Park - and she captured lots of photos of locals on the scene. Have a look to see if you recognize any of your friends or neighbors :-)
